from seed to finish! this is a slubby cotton yarn that started in the dirt and went straight into my hands to be spun. I thank local raspberries and mulberries for the lovely lavender hue. I’ll be knitting up some cute things with this so keep a lookout as always. ❤

curious about my cotton plants? check out the story.

I have slowly been preparing dye baths while I spin and knit my cotton. pictured are avocado pits, leftover tea, and homegrown nasturtium flowers and rosemary.

I’m kicking off Kae Q’s official opening with Ready-to-Sow Seed Packs! I only have French lavender for now, but I’ll be adding more yummy herbs as they come. My best friend, Ilyssa, and I have linked up and are going to make some delicious creams and salves. It’s going to be great.
I collected these seeds from an organic garden in California. It has a wonderful sweet scent, serrated grey-green leaves, and gorgeous pineapple-shaped flowers.
This comes as a ready-to-sow seed packs inside a small zip bag. I do this with small seeds to make it easier to plant them. Let us do the work so you don’t have to!+ Simply wet the paper inside the bag, zip it up, and wait for the seeds to sprout, checking them every day. + It is recommended that you put the seeds in the refrigerator for a day to break the dormancy cycle. + For extra anti-bacterial power, use diluted chamomile tea instead of water. + Once germinated, simply rip off a piece of the paper (with the sprout attached) and plant it in a pot. Lavender loves a dry climate and sandy soil. Make sure your soil drains well, as this lavender does not like a wet foot. Water only when dry. Does best in USDA zones 8-11.
Contains 10 seeds. Made to order.

I let some of my stevia plants flower so that I could collect some seeds. Once they’re harvested, I’ll bag them up and sell them in my shop. Let me know if you’re interested! I can also send out some cuttings if seeds don’t interest you.

These stevia seeds are almost ready to go! They’ll be available at the shop later this week.

It’s so soft, so bouncy, looks and feels like baby sheep. What is it? Luscious, homegrown organic cotton. My coworker grabbed some for me from his friend’s garden and happened to leave a few seeds in there for me. Guess who’s going to grow cotton now! 

Maybe if I can get some cotton growing (and figure out how the heck to spin it) I can use it to make headwraps. 100% truly handmade, from start to finish. How great does that sound?
